I have always done everything myself that I'm capable of doing, whether its Gardening, decorating or vehicle repairs etc. Our van is due a timing belt change and today I thought I'd give it a go. Within 10 minutes it got a little tricky and I'd had enough so put the wheel back on and booked it into the local garage for them to do along with a service. I have also just acquired a gardener to cut my grass once a fortnight as well and thinking seriously about a cleaner. I am working quite hard at the minute on a lot of jobs quite far away and doing a fair bit of driving so I'm putting my lack of enthusiasm down to that at the moment but it is quite worrying. We were staying in some digs a few weeks ago and we went shopping in the local town, the walk back was up a steep hill in 30 deg heat and I was carrying a couple of bags full of bottled water, its the first time in my life I thought that I feel well and truly past it.
